Thank you, Chuck, Eric and Kerry. These hills remind me of the waves that have appeared in the forum recently. They are water-formed, after all.
Kerry: good suggestion and I have explored contrast a bit. Contrast has actually been decreased in the shadow of #1. I will think about your suggestions as I continue to process several more of these.
I appreciate the comment about a lack of focal point. Personally, I enjoy shapes and textures enough not to feel the need for a focal point, but that's just my preference.
